Reviewed 11 April 2016

The owners were very friendly, helpful and wonderful people. They made us feel very welcome in their guest house. The rooms were superb, the amenities in the rooms were brilliant and well thought out. We would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone going to Somerset west.

Southern Cross Guesthouse was a great find with great service, excelent furnishings and lovely view. The hosts are very helpful and friendly, the location is good (within decent vicinity to Stellenbosch and the airport) andeasy to find for those not familiar with the area. I highly recommend it

Staying here was a delight... We were met with a friendly welcoming by Claudia and Marc, who couldn't be more accommodating to our needs.
Lovely comforty beds, cleanest rooms, and a lovely tranquil pool /sun lounge area.
It's the real care and the personal touches shown that make this a special place to stay...Would definately recommend.

My Daughter and I had a very good stay at Southern Cross Guest House and the rooms were very comfortable and clean and Marc and Claudia were very accommodating.
The only thing that really needs some attention is that due to the weather being so hot in summer there needs to be an air conditioner or at the very least a Fan. I had to buy a fan and use it in the room until I took it to my daughters apartment that she was moving into.

Only stayed one night on business trip and very adequate and owners very pleasant and serve a lovely breakfast, Only had a small room but on business so no where to rest and work on my computer. Suggestion maybe mount TV on wall so that TV table could be used as work station. Also could only find local SA channels on TV maybe a better range of channels with some international news would be useful.
